Because it is my front yard, I did try my best to keep things looking as neat and tidy as possible. I didn't try to hide the fact that I was growing vegetables, I celebrated it. I left some remnant roses and phlox growing in between the tomatoes and green beans, but there was no mistaking that 80 per cent of this garden was vegetables. I also grew a lot of root crops that would keep throughout the winter. Things like beets, carrots, potatoes, acorn squash and sweet potatoes.
